Total Film Magazine has unveiled four new images featuring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider.
Inspired by the 2013 video game of the same name, Tomb Raider will find a young Lara Croft embarking on a quest to investigate the disappearance of her long-lost father. The four new images offer fans a glimpse of the adventure as Lara uses a bow and arrow, explores tombs, and engages in intense action sequences.

Seven years after the disappearance of her father, 21-year-old Lara has refused to take the reins of his global business empire, instead working as a bike courier in London while taking college classes. Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her father’s disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name Tomb Raider.
Directed by Roar Uthaug and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Tomb Raider also stars Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Daniel Wu, and Dominic West as Richard Croft.
Tomb Raider will be released in theaters on March 16, 2018.
5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe
World building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.
Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.
